Every year there is a calling to start fresh. The beginning of the year is like a breath of fresh air to begin newly or recommit to projects that fell by the wayside in 2012.
Each year has a new intention for me. For example, this past year was The Year of Transformation and Power and I lived fully inside that context. Lots of adventure, new beginnings, and extraordinary growth in many areas.
As I look forward I am declaring this year The Year of Breakthrough!
I tend to work with businesses and individuals who want to start something big or make a big change in their lives or career. Reinventing one’s life can be exciting and, for some, is absolutely essential. It can also be daunting.
For some it is a career that has ended or is not making the money that it once was. Or simply, having fulfilled what there was to accomplish and it is time for something new.
Maybe it is a personal breakthrough. Something that has limited them for years and they are finally ready to be done with it. Like a poverty mentality, or a constant struggle with happiness in relationships, or vitality.
Really, The Year of Breakthrough can be in any area of life… whatever is important to you.
Be bold! Be daring! Take this new year’s energy and launch yourself into your dream life… especially if you are unsure how to get there!
Then DECLARE it.
This is what I am committed to! I will _____! This shall be!
So, what exactly counts as a breakthrough?
Any unpredictable result. In other words, you cannot see the bridge between where you are now and where you want to be. There will be some leap into the unknown.
For the most part, this is the stopping point for the ordinary person. If they cannot see the next step, they just leave it as a dream and never take any actions toward their goal.
This is the most certain way to never achieve your dream and it has a subtle and profound effect on us. Every time we don’t start something that matters to us we become a little more resigned about life, a little sadder, a little older.
Reinventing your life or taking on a bold new adventure is not an ordinary thing to do. Extraordinary people take on extraordinary quests. Reinventing your life is for remarkable, magnificent, and courageous people, like you!
So I encourage you to start… even the smallest step toward your goal will make a difference.
Here is a good beginning question, “Am I willing to have _______?”
Are you willing to have your dream? You might discover some emotion there when you ask that question. Ask it out loud… talk to the universe. “Am I willing to have my dream?”
If the answer to your question is, “Yes!”, then spend a little time with your eyes closed and imagine your life with that accomplished. How would life be? Who would you be if you had already fulfilled this impossible quest? Maybe you want to get married, or you want to quit your job and open a business, maybe you want to buy a house, or you want to run a marathon (or just be able to!) , or go on a vacation with your whole family. Maybe you want to save money or do something creative with your life.
Whatever it is… imagine yourself having it/ being it right now and notice your thoughts and body sensations. That is the beginning of your adventure!
Just commit and you will be amazed at what the universe will bring to aid you on your quest.
As Geothe said so brilliantly, Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!
